An integrated circuit capacitor (20) includes a bottom electrode structure (24) having an adhesion metal portion (34), a noble metal portion (36), and a second noble metal layer (40). A process of manufacture includes annealing the adhesion metal portion (34) and the noble metal portion (36) prior to the deposition of second noble metal layer (40) for purposes of forming barrier region (38). The electrode (24) preferably contacts metal oxide layer (26), which is made of a perovskite or perovskite-like layered superlattice material. A temporary capping layer (59) is formed and removed in manufacture, which serves to increase polarization potential from the device by at least 40%.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
